Force of nature

I try as hard as possible not to take the whole nautical thing too far, but sometimes I can’t help it. I mean, boating shoes, a sailor hat and nautical stripes were meant to go together, like me and chocolate or me and coffee. It’s a force of nature, and you don’t want to mess with nature. Here’s the breakdown:

Shirt: Gap
Shorts: Gap
Shoes: Lands’ End (last year, but similar here)
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Hat: Forever 21
Bracelets: Forever 21/American Eagle/My grandma's 

If you look closely, you’ll see that the red stripe in my shirt doesn’t exactly match the reddish-orange of my shorts. In order to avoid any more matching, nautical-themed pieces in one outfit, I carried a neutral bag (my favorite in my closet) and a few gold accessories.
